Usually betas have blue site badges with the first letters of their site title in the badge, for example: IPS: Interpersonal Skills

Why is our site badge UAV:


Shouldn’t it be DMA?

While it certainly breaks the pattern, I think it's a good thing we have UAV and not DMA.

To me, UAV more accurately summarizes what we're discussing here. DMA reminds me of other stuff like the computer architecture/programming term Direct Memory Access.

  • $\begingroup$ UAV makes total sense, did you suggest this @ifconfig or did the StackExchange employees just come up with it themselves? $\endgroup$ Apr 15, 2020 at 1:44
  • $\begingroup$ No, this was the work of SE staff. All I supplied was the name "Drones and Model Aircraft" when I made the site proposal. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @user1271772 It is something that Robert put in his recommendation when he reviewed the proposal back in December. He always dug into every proposal he reviewed to give it that special touch. $\endgroup$

Several Beta sites have letters in their logo that don't readily fit the name. Constructed Languages has "art" as its logo.

UAV is something many people will recognize as being relevant to the topic.
